Oooh, that's terrible. So funny, but so terrible.
@TheKen42, Difference is the towers got rebuilt, gender is still a burning pile of awkward conversations for anyone who doesn't care about labels
@TheKen42, my 5 year old is playing Lego Worlds. I decided to see if we could get on the clouds and built a giant staircase up to the sky. Then I started singing,"Where were you, when we built the ladder to heaven... 9/11..." of course he repeated the 9/11 part and now I feel like a slightly horrible parent. Anyway, once you put a stairway to a cloud they start putting animals/Lego people's up there. And you can kick them out.
@Dexios S Divine, Anyone who says that all toilets should be gender neutral should be forced to use a cubicle after some big-arse hairy trucker who has just done 24 hours straight on coffee & truck-stop tacos.
@Nellybert , So, its alright for dudes to deal with that and not girls? Either way, have netural or sex bathrooms, who fücking cares. Seriously shouldn't be a debate, take your shït and go. A bathroom isn't a get together bar, I don't care who uses it.
@Dexios S Divine, No, it's not. Men can be f**king disgusting in their - I was trying to make a lighthearted suggestion that anyone who has the option of using female only toilets should take it. I'm not saying anything for or against trans people using the toilet they feel appropriate for themselves, just that men's toilets are often horrendous.
@Nellybert , Both sexes can be gross as shït, lets be real here. I've been in some nasty ass bathrooms for both, its not an exclusive feature for men
@Dexios S Divine, I think you have it backwards. It's not awkward to those people.
@Dexios S Divine, right, who cares? It's not a big deal, so let's not make places think they have to spend money to change their bathrooms.
The best thing is just not giving a fvck what gender someone is or if they're offended 👍
@PippyPie, There are times when it does matter though - like on dating apps.
If you identify as female, that's all well and good. But hook up with someone and they find the 'wrong' plumbing down there, it's gonna get awkward. And possibly violent. Hell, you could even be opening yourself up to a sexual assault charge on the basis of that not being what they consented to.
@Nellybert , yup I agree with all that 🐶
@Nellybert , trans people know that though and rarely is that an issue
@Nellybert , yeah, if I was purely straight and you say you're a chick im assuming you have a pussy, if I find out you're trans then I'm entirely in the right for being pissed. No one should be forced to like something just to save your feelings, not everyone is into dicks or trans or w/e. State what you're into and what you are and someone with the same taste will show up. I don't get why thats such a hard concept for people to understand.
@Ostrich Thief, Its the sjws who aren't "real" trans people who cause this kind of problem. Don't tell me to define whats a real trans person please, Im sure you know which type of people Im talking about.
@Ostrich Thief, Back in my single guy clubbing days one of the girls we went out with had a gay friend who would probably these days describe themselves as trans/non-binary/genderqueer. They were very effeminate looking (both physically and in mode of dress) and their favourite sport was going after straight guys who were too drunk to realise that this was not a biological female hitting on them. One of my wife's friends is a pre-op ladyboy; she has had a boobjob hips, ass-implants, cheekbones, nose, chin etc done - if you didn't know, you'd swear she was a biological female - but still has man-junk. More than once we've had to grab her and make a very swift exit from a bar/club before someone got glassed.
I'm not saying that these two are representative, just that it does happen.
@Dexios S Divine, the people you're talking about are more myth than reality though. The majority are just normal people, and only a small minority of them are dicks. I'd say around the same % of the human population that is dickish.
The idea of the angry and irrational sjw person is a trope and a stereotype and does not represent a real significant chunk of the trans community.
Also most trans women are into women or are bi, so it's even less of a problem than you'd imagine. And even those who are into men wouldn't want to "trick" men into sleeping with them or anything. They're just people; no malicious intent or anything
@Dexios S Divine, they wouldn't want someone who didn't accept them anyway i would assume any more than you'd want one of them
@Dexios S Divine, I don't think it'll be a common thing, just saying that there are occasions when biological gender does matter.
Going off on a tangent - but I wonder if identifying as the opposite to your biological gender has ever caused an issue in an emergency medical situation. Might have made an interesting plot line for an episode of House or something.
@Nellybert , that's the thing is that some people will do stuff like that, and if that bothers someone I feel like they should be blaming the individual and not the entire trans community
@Ostrich Thief, I've ran into them quite often in my 3 years in college so far, and I bet places like cali have them too. Didn't say they were the majority, but they're common enough to be a damn nuisance, at least in my area
@Ostrich Thief, That concept applies to anything really. You're retarded if you blame a whole group for the actions of a few
@Dexios S Divine, lol. Try to take it as a compliment in a way I guess is the best thing to do in that situation. We're all just people really, and if you're not into something then just respectfully tell them you aren't into it, and if they are deceitful or trying to trick you intentionally then the bad is on them if you've made it clear it's not what you want
@Dexios S Divine, lol couldn't agree more. Sooo many of society's fvcking major problems would be avoided if people stopped blaming whole groups for the actions of individuals or small segments of the populace.
Aren't humans cognitive biases fantastic
@Ostrich Thief, My wife is half-Filipino and has a lot of T-Girl (their term, not mine) friends - mostly they're wonderful people, but occasionally one will forget that some people are not aware of their biological status and may not be happy when they find out.
@Nellybert , you ever been to the Philippines?
@Ostrich Thief, No, we keep talking about it, but it's been 10 years now and we've never gotten around to it. Hoping that next year we can go Manila-Cebu-Tokyo or something.
@Nellybert , cool cool. I went last December with my half Filipino girlfriend and her family. Super interesting experience. Manila is kinda super fvcking crazy though XD the driving is absolutely insane. You need a Filipino driving veteran if you don't wanna die
@Ostrich Thief, the parts I enjoyed the most were the places farther away from Manila with nice scenery
I don't care about labels. You are whatever you are just don't get fvcking offended when I get it wrong and I think I speak for most people when I say I really don't give a shjt. I'm expecting downvotes but I wanted to have a little rant.
@Jipz, now im offended that you don't care and I can't remind everyone I see of my gender. Now I have to be vegan to be interesting.
@Jipz, none of my trans friends get angry if people accidentally misgender them; they only get upset when they correct people and then they deliberately misgender them to make them feel bad
You have 3 options male,female, or none of the above anything further and you're just making up a third gender so that you can feel like the special snowflake that you aren't
@eleven, i mean, that's basically all that anyone is saying, man, woman, or non-binary, all those other things like "agender" and "bigender" and "genderqueer" are just subcategories of non-binary and the only real use of the labels is to help people find others with similar experiences
@eleven, well there are currently only two types of genitals so im gonna say there are only two genders.
@Caine, tell that to tumblr
@eleven, lol why bother, tumblr is a modern day insane asylum.
As someone going into the medical field, I will refuse service to someone who claims another gender. They only train us on the two that exist. Anything else is outside my scope of practice.
@Empshok, these people aren't claiming another gender in that respect. They feel genuinely horrible presenting as either extreme of masculinity or femininity. Why does that burger you? And if you're going into the medical field you better get over that because you're going to have to deal with so many different types of people every day.
@Ostrich Thief, I understand balance. I understand different types of people. I understand that in the past, and even now in many places, men and women are and were not respected as equal. But I don't know what you are referring to regarding "extreme" masculinity or femininity. I also believe that this alternate sexuality trend will only lead to misery. It used to be scientifically accepted to be a disorder, until dissidents sued it away. You can look it up.
@Empshok, the thing is, no treatment other than transitioning is effective for these people. They've tried for so long to "cure" transgenderism but nothing else works. Who cares if it's classified as a mental illness? If treatment of their dysphoria through whatever form of gender transition helps these people and alleviates their symptoms, what is the point in attacking them and telling them they shouldn't fix their problems? It's hard to understand if you've never felt how they have, but you should try to learn about them. They experience extremeeee anxiety and depression because of their gender. And nothing they do can make those feelings go away. They've tried for so long man and it doesn't work like that, they're miserable. And transitioning some or all the way works for most of them. Why hate on people trying to fix themselves?
@Ostrich Thief, are there any credible psychologists who have actual methods for making gender dysphoria go away without transitioning? Not really. If it was something that worked, trans people would be doing it. And transitioning works, so they're doing it. They're just tired of feeling like shjt every day and want to fix it
I build the twin towers out of Legos and fly a toy plane into them to help me sleep at night
@VibratingButtChomper, to help you sleep... Forever
Reposts used to be like the mainstream use of the term "literally a nazi" as an insult.
9/11 jokes are just PLANE wrong
Ugh. Can this not be a conversation please?
And Bush is responsible
